Herb and Garlic Almond Cheese [Vegan]




  • 1.5 cups plant milk (eg. almond, oat, rice, coconut, soy etc)
  • 1/2 cup almonds blanched
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
  • 2 teaspoon sea salt (Celtic or Himalayan)
  • 2 large cloves garlic
  • 1 tablespoon mixed herbs
  • 1 tablespoon agar agar powder
  • 2 tablespoons tapioca starch
  • 1/2 cup hot boiled water


  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon mixed Italian herbs


  1. Firstly, you’re going to need a medium sized saucepan, a blender and some cheese molds (I used mini spring form cake tins)
  2. Add all the ingredients (except the coating mix) into the blender and blend until smooth.
  3. Pour the mixture into a medium size saucepan and gradually bring to the boil before reducing heat to a simmer.
  4. After 5-10 minutes the mixture will become thick and creamy (see video for full step by step instructions). Quickly pour the mixture into your cheese moulds
  5. Place the cheese moulds into the fridge for 30 minutes or until set.
  6. Remove from moulds and carefully roll in the coating mix to coat the edges – this makes the cheese look great and taste even better!

I love Anja\'s videos she makes it so much easier and fun than just reading a recipe and I have loved every one of her recipes I\'ve tried so far. I haven\'t tried her nut cheeses yet but her mac and cheese recipe with reg potato and sweet potato "cheese" sauce and her cauliflower "cheese" sauce are a good enough cheesy food for me and mine right now.
